Mirzapur Season 2 Gets Its Release Date
The wait is finally over, the rustic crime thriller is back with its second season to thrill the fans all around the world. The second season was teasing fans right from the start of this year when the makers released a motion poster online. However, amid these unprecedented times, this news has come as a stress relief for the ardent fans of the series. Mirzapur Season 2 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video from October 23rd, 2020. Its teaser was released a few days back and one could assume that the second season is going to be bigger and better.
Set in the outbacks of Uttar Pradesh, the first season of this enthralling crime drama displayed a sinister, dark, and complex world of drugs, guns, and crime. Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, and Vikrant Massey were among the prime protagonist and antagonists who portrayed their roles to the fullest and were highly appreciated by the audiences.
At the end of the season, it was carnage when Munna (Divyendu Sharma) killed Bablu (Vikrant Massey) and Guddu’s (Ali Fazal) wife Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar), leaving Guddu hapless. His brother and his wife were killed in front of his eyes and the second season will see how Guddu avenges the death of his loved ones. The 56-second teaser says it all and one could sense that Guddu’s quest to avenge the death of his closed one will take the path of bloodshed and annihilation.
Excited about the return Mirzapur, producer Ritesh Sidhwani said, “Mirzapur was a step in that endeavor. It was not just about breaking boundaries for the audiences, but also for ourselves as content creators. Bringing thrilling and untold stories from India’s hinterland without losing authenticity has been our biggest win. All the praise that season one of Mirzapur has received, not just in India, but across the globe, is heartening.”
The creator Puneet Krishna also shared his feelings. He said, “The love and appreciation that the show has garnered since its launch has been simply overwhelming. Taking it a notch higher, we’re certain that the audiences are in for a visual treat in the sequel. Seeing their excitement for season 2 for months now made each one of us deliver a performance that matches up to the scale at which the show has now placed itself. We are thrilled to take the fans to another dynamic world of Mirzapur that they have been waiting for a very long time.”
